Keith Tribe

Keith Tribe has a long-standing interest in conceptual and economic history, language and translation as well as an interest in and the work of Max Weber. Recently he published the book The Economy of the Word: Language, History, and Economics with Oxford University Press and is currently working on a new translation of Max Weber’s Economy and Society for Harvard University Press. Professor Tribe’s has also played a huge role in the dissemination and translation of the work of Wilhelm Hennis and Reinhart Koselleck to English speaking academic circles.   

The seminars

During his visit, Professor Tribe will lead two seminars which will follow roughly the same form. In the first part, Tribe will give a keynote lecture, and, in the second part a panel of guests will discuss the consequences of some of Tribe’s recent work in relation to the overall topic of the day. On November 23, the overall topic of the seminar will be ‘‘The history of concepts as a method to study the economy and markets’. On November 24, the topic of the seminar will be Max Weber’s central notions of ‘life orders’ and ‘conduct of life’.

November 23, 2016

14:00: Introduction to the events.
14.05: Keith Tribe Lecture: “Grain Markets and Free Trade in mid-eighteenth century France”

  • Description: I will discuss grain market structure, proposals for market "liberalisation", and "free trade" in grain in the context of arguments developed by Mirabeau, Quesnay and Turgot in mid-eighteenth-century France.  The idea is to ground a discussion of emergent economic concepts in a particular set of material issues to which these concepts are addressed, but to which they cannot simply be reduced.

Seminar 2: "The history of concepts as a method to the study the economy and markets"

Seminar 2: “Max Weber's Lecture: Science as a Vocation”
November 24, 2016


14:00: Introduction
14.05: Keith Tribe Lecture: “Max Weber's Lecture: Science as a Vocation

  • Description: Max Weber's two lectures, Wissenschaft als Beruf and Politik als Beruf were given in 1917 and 1919 respectively as part of a lecture series organized by the Bavarian branch of the Free Student Union on "Geistige Arbeit als Beruf", and eventually the only two lectures actually delivered in the series.  There is therefore an institutional connection between them that sheds light on their register and purpose.  Wissenschaft als Beruf also has clear links to earlier phases of Weber's writings that lend perspective to the arguments he developed in 1917, and raise more general questions about the way that Weber, in constructing his arguments, was able to freely draw on older material to make new arguments.
